Intermediate Trade: QQQ Real Money Pro($)

A hedge for any 5% or more downside retest by the Nasdaq 100 between now and the latter part of April.
Over on Fast Money there are more conversations about "unusual call activity." I am not sure why outsized index call activity (e.g.as discussed in PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ) on the show) is an indicator of anything. It remains my view that unusual call activity in Indices is nothing more than guessing. I would like to see empirical evidence that I am wrong, respectfully.

Curb Your Enthusiasm! Real Money Pro($)

"I am trying to elevate small talk to medium talk." -- Larry David
I have sold out the following trading Long rentals: (SPY) 267.25, (QQQ) 160.05, (JPM) 110.50, and (C) 74. I am back to small net short in exposure.

More Adds Real Money Pro($)

I added further to Citigroup (C) , JPMorgan Chase (JPM) , (QQQ) , Macy's (M)  and Dillard's (DDS) on early weakness.

Today's Trades Real Money Pro($)

In premarket trading I covered my (IWM) short and reduced further my (QQQ) short. I remain small short (SPY) -- but close to tag ends. In the regular session I am buying more or trading long rental Intel (INTC) and (MJX) (recently put on my Best Ideas List) I am very small net short now -- for now, being tactical with a short term view. As to the markets, I have been writing that a "two way market" in which the straight up higher complexion was heading our way. In terms of specific stocks I will be updating (MJX) (and outlining my bullish thesis), Radian (RDN) (+EPS report), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wells Fargo (WFC) (discussing new government restrictions -- which I had scaled out of in January). My guess is that, over the near term, the markets will likely stabilize (though this is subject to how the short vol and risk parity maniacs react). Indeed if one forced me to say higher or lower from here by week's end -- I would say higher. I could even see markets ending up higher than Friday's close. Regardless of view... a superb trading market likely lies ahead and I plan to be opportunistic.
The yield on the ten year US note is now down by almost three basis points to 2.825% this morning. With the absence of further follow through in pressure on the debt markets, in premarket trading I have reduced my (QQQ) short (covering at $163.05) and I have covered all of my (IWM) short ($152.60). With these trades I have moved from between a small and medium sized net short exposure to small sized net short.
